Not quite the headlines many expected to be reading after Wolves owner Steve Morgan visited the dressing room after the defeat to Liverpool last week.
But a lot can change in a week in football and after a meeting between said owner and manager, that matter was supposedly resolved ahead of the game against QPR.
‘Can I just say something about my owner though?’ McCarthy asked Wolves Official Website before adding: ‘We’ve won three games in 22 and I’m still here as the manager of Wolves.
‘Let me tell you that is some level of support so let’s not forget that.
‘When everyone is writing negative stuff about me and Steve he has been as supportive as anyone else.
‘I owe him a debt of gratitude for that.’
That said, tensions had to be frayed between the two and if Wolves had lost their third consecutive game at the weekend, or even extended their winless streak to 10 games, then who knows what might have been this week.
It would seem that as soon as Mick McCarthy appears to be on the brink and ready to go beyond the point of no return, the team pull out a win. It happened against Sunderland and it happened against QPR on Saturday.
The 3 points lifted Wolves out of the relegation places and sets up the ideal preparation for the Black Country Derby with West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
Vital Wolves Comment: Another 3 points against our rivals and that 5 point gap between us and the rest of the lower half clubs would dramatically shorten, potentially dragging a number of teams into the relegation scrap.
